Why Didn't I Lose This Week?!! Help!
Tuesday, April 08, 2008
Well, there’s not much to say except that I didn’t lose anything this week. It’s hard to not be discouraged. I have to ask what went wrong? Why didn’t I lose? I exercised every single day. I ate 5-8 servings of fruits and vegetables. I drank a ton of water. I feel like I did everything right. The only thing I can do is raise my calories which totally seems to go against what I should do. In the past I would just drop calories, but I can’t because I still have to be able to breastfeed. All I can figure is that I’m not getting enough calories, so it’s slowing my metabolism down. On average I eat 1100 calories a day. I guess I’ll try to eat around 1300 this week and see if it changes anything. At least I didn’t gain, right?
Do you guys have any suggestions?
